Cannot Ping Machine in Workgroup
Posted on 2008-10-16
A local HR B l o c k outfit has a workgroup of a few computers, all on DHCP leases. Reimaged a server and I am now trying to hook up shared printers to the server. Problem is I cannot ping one of the computers from the server, nor can I ping this problem computer from any of the other computers in the workgroup. I can ping from the problem computer to the rest just fine; all have internet access. The firewall is disabled on all computes, there are no security suites installed on any of the computers. I called HR remote support and they too could not figure it out... it's like an invisible barrier surrounding the comp. I've flushed DNS caches, released/renewed IP's, rebooted the router, reinstalled NIC drivers, installed a new NIC, reset TCP/IP stack... nothing... same scenario. Also... the Cisco VPN Client utility does not connect to HR headquarters as it should.
Any ideas? Time to reimage this computer?
